NEW YORK -- November 13, 2012

LMP Capital and Income Fund Inc. (NYSE: SCD) today announced a quarterly
distribution of $0.2800 per common share for December 2012.

The distribution schedule appears below:

                                                        
Month          Ex-Date          Record Date       Payable Date       Amount
December       12/12/2012       12/14/2012        12/21/2012         $0.2800

Under the terms of the Fund's managed distribution policy, the Fund seeks to
maintain a consistent distribution level, stated as a fixed rate per common
share per quarter, that may be paid in part or in full from net investment
income and realized capital gains, or a combination thereof. Shareholders
should note, however, that if the Fund's aggregate net investment income and
net realized capital gains are less than the amount of the distribution level,
the difference will be distributed from the Fund's assets and will constitute
a return of the shareholder's capital. A return of capital is not taxable;
rather it reduces a shareholder's tax basis in his or her shares of the Fund.

The Board of Directors may reduce the Fund's quarterly distribution rate in
the future or terminate or suspend the managed distribution policy at any
time. Any such reduction in the quarterly distribution rate, termination or
suspension could have an adverse effect on the market price.

The Fund estimates that approximately 42.21% of the cumulative fiscal
year-to-date distributions through December 2012 are sourced from net
investment income and 57.79% constitute a return of shareholder’s capital. The
estimated components of each distribution will be provided to shareholders of
record in a separate notice.

Please note that neither this press release nor the separate notice should be
used for tax reporting purposes and that each is being provided to announce
the amount and estimated source of the Fund's distributions that have been
declared by the Board of Directors. In early 2013, after definitive
information is available, the Fund will send shareholders a Form 1099-DIV, if
applicable, specifying how the distributions paid by the Fund during the prior
calendar year should be characterized for purposes of reporting the
distributions on a shareholder's tax return (e.g., ordinary income, long-term
capital gain or return of capital).
